December is long gone, and the holiday weeks have subsided.  Now, it's time to choose one of our Projects of the Week to be named December's Project of the Month. The project that receives the most votes for Project of the Month will receive a consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute!

Voting will be open until Friday January 18 at 5 PM Eastern.

"Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood"

"Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood" is a documentary feature that examines the life and work of pioneering Chinese-American artist Tyrus Wong. The film tells the story of how a young boy from Southern China overcame a life of poverty and racial discrimination to become a celebrated illustrator, painter, lithographer, kite maker, Hollywood sketch artist, and Disney Legend. "Brushstrokes in Hollywood" unveils the unique blend of influences that shaped Tyrus Wong and his art – from his passion for the bold art of the Sung dynasty to his work as a depression-era muralist, California watercolor painter and Hollywood set illustrator.

"Portrait of a Serial Monogamist"

Elsie Neufeld seems to have it all: a successful career as a television producer, a tight-knit circle of friends, and Robyn, her loving girlfriend and longest relationship to date. When Elsie breaks it off to pursue a younger woman, things begin to unravel. Her friends think she has a problem, her family thinks she’s making a mistake and Elsie’s new love interest might not be interested in a relationship. Worst of all, Elsie begins to suspect that she broke up with the one she was meant to be with.

"The Fitzroy"

The Fitzroy is a live action black comedy set in an alternative post-apocalyptic 1950’s. The world is covered in a poisons gas and the last place for a traditional seaside holiday is The Fitzroy hotel an abandoned submarine just of the coast of England.
 

"Umbrella"

We have all had to deal with forgiveness in our life. But what if you were a witness to a woman being attacked, and despite your best efforts in helping her, wound up having your leg amputated as a direct result of the melee?  How about learning from the police that the woman you attempted to save was raped? How could you live with yourself?  What if your wife, unable to cope with the stress and pressure of the marriage, decided to take another man into your bedroom?

    I tried voting for Tyrus Wong but my email address wasn't accepted.
    Please fix, as this appears to be a problem.

    IndieWire you have listed the synopsis of a film not in the running Sole Survivor instead of Serial Monogamist... OPPS! Pls correct ASAP!

    The description for Portrait of a Serial Monogamist is incorrect! Seems like an unfair disadvantage.
